Ownership cost

What used Ford Fiesta ST hatchback will I get for my budget?

You’ll need around £17,000 to get inside an ST, this buying you a 2018 car with a nominal mileage and full history from a franchised dealer. This represents a good saving on the price of a brand new one, even if part of the ST’s great appeal is its value for money new. Up the money to between £18,000 and £20,000 and you’ll find plenty of excellent examples from 2018 with barely any miles on them at all, and in ST-2 and ST-3 trims.

How much does it cost to run a Ford Fiesta ST hatchback?

MPG

The ST’s new engine is responsible for an improvement in official fuel economy over the previous model. On paper, the car is good for 40.4mpg, according to the latest WLTP ratings. This corresponds to a CO2 emissions ouput figure of 136g/km.

Car tax

All STs of this generation will be registered after the tax changes of April 2017 came into force and will therefore pay annual VED tax at the flat rate, currently £140 a year. Insurance shouldn’t be too expensive, either, considering the performance on offer, as the ST sits in group 28.

Servicing 

Servicing costs should be moderate, too, with Ford able to offer a number of servicing plans for cars up to three years old. These allow servicing costs to be planned for and paid by direct debit if needed.
